Every year, summer camps all around the US become home for 11 million excited youngsters.
A home away from home, summer camps are here to give children an awesome summer, with sports, arts and the outdoors - camp is, to campers, the best place on Earth.
When you arrive at camp you will have training specific to your role at camp, which will get you fully pumped and ready for the summer. You may be slightly overwhelmed at the beginning, and that's ok, just make sure you're speaking to people about it and know we're always on hand to help.
Top tips for when you arrive at camp
- Get to know your surroundings
- Don't be afraid to get involved
- Get to know your co-counsellors
- Contact your parents - let them know you've arrived safely
Summer camp may be the best job you’ll ever have but you'll still need a break. It's long hours and despite all the fun you're having, you’re going to be tired. Each camp is different in the way they structure time off, so check in with your camp about your time and days off. If it doesn't sound right then don't be afraid to ask or contact us.
As sweet tasting as it is, make sure you swap the Mountain Dew for a glass of water every now and then and make sure you're well hydrated, because it's going to be hot. If you have any specific dietary requirements or concerns, then make sure to speak to your boss at camp before you arrive.
